Evening everyone, yes I have an update, sorry that they are few and far between these days, I have made myself do this one before things get too involved with the house sell and then moving. Sometimes I look around me here at home and ask myself, am I mad? do I really want to sell and lose what I have here? Don't get me wrong, I don't have much but what I do have is a great environment for creating things while relaxing in my lovely garden? Plus the house now looks great having done all those little jobs that should have been done years ago but never got around to it. I guess the trick is to find somewhere better but so far this has eluded me, we keep looking though.

Good day all.. a slight deviation from where I was, I recently received the laser cut parts from Ed (Model Engineers Laser) for the ashpan and decided to tackle this now. To be honest I'm looking for small jobs that I can do while not getting too involved in anything while trying to sell/find a new home. I should be packing the workshop away, not still building parts but the ashpan is pretty straightforward even if the actual drawing has a lot going on. Once again I turned to john Baguley for his indispensable help in converting the paper drawing to CAD, the full story is within this latest entry... hope you all find it interesting, more pretty pictures to look at than usual..

Yesterday I fitted two dummy eccentric rods just to see how things were looking, all seems ok so far, nothing timed yet and still no bobbings fitted but we are getting there. I have a short video to show the state of play, please forgive the abrupt cutoff, cameraman (er wife) decided she had heard enough of my waffle, to be fair, I hadn't briefed her properly..🙂
